I've eaten at Buon Appetito a number of times and am always very pleased with the taste, quality, and serving size of the food presented. I favor the Stonington scallops with fig sauce over the gorgonzola polenta with zucchini chips. Yum! I always have trouble getting past this item on the menu. My family gravitates toward the veal or eggplant... More

The short ribs are so tender and well seasoned. The best my daughter ever had. The grilled scallops were cooked perfectly and the side of Gorgonzola polenta was delicious. My husband had the seafood special pasta dish and all of the seafood was fresh, cooked to perfection and the sauce a light but spicy tomato. You have to try the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner on a Wed. evening so the place was not too crowded. Our waiter was so kind and the dinner delicious. I love salmon and this was cooked just right, though I did not care too much for the apple stuff served with it. The shrimp dish was enjoyed by my husband who... More

Recently visited Buon Appetito and was a little taken back by the over involvement of the management during a rush dinner time. It wasn't hard to notice the drama they were casting on their employees. On three different occasions, just during my meal, there were obvious displays of ridicule and scolding by these management figures toward their hard working employees.... More

I don't get all the rave reviews. My husband and I had dinner here in July 2014. I ordered the eggplant parm and he had the linguine w/clam sauce. Average at best. Eggplant was stringy and undercooked in some spots.The staff is very nice and attentive tho. The mgr or owner, whichever he is, came around to the tables to... More

Words cannot express how wonderful this restaurant is! We were in town for a very large softball tournament. We stopped by first for lunch - three families, arriving at different times. Not only did the staff accommodate us and our separate orders, but they did so with a smile. After a long day at the field, we wanted to get... More

We first stopped in for a small lunch early afternoon after we had checked into our hotel. Their were three families that had walked in at different times and the staff was very accommodating.

Buon Appetito had to struggle to open, it had to struggle to get it's liquor license, and it's had to overcome some really bad feelings from the local community. But over the last few years, it has managed to overcome all those issues and created a very nice restaurant that has been accepted by the local community. Our friends and... More

This restaurant was fabulous and the service was top-notch. They arranged a dinner for 31 of us while my son's soccer team played in RI for regionals. The food was amazing! And I can't say enough nice things about our server who was also was the manager. She arranged it all over the phone for us and it was perfect... More
